I was searching through Wikipedia\Persian and find this remarkable and unique structure. This is a channel to pass sweet water across salt water river (under the water). It has been build during Sassanian era in south of Iran.

I forgot to add many times Ternos have been used to pass water which came from mountain through Qanat/ Kariz to the cities.
